User event export

This feature allows you to export data containing the events (interactions) a User had with your Guides.

It requires technical knowledge so the assistance of a developer is recommended. 


What is it good for?

Use the data to:

  • monitor the interaction with Guides for specific Users.

  • compare it against the statistics you are collecting internally with other tools. 


What data will you get?

The exported data will contain details on the following events:

  • Guide started

  • Guide finished

  • Guide exited


For each of the events, you will see the following details:

Time of the event


Shows the exact time the event was triggered (UTC)

Type of the event


E.g. Guide was started or exited

User

User ID of the User who triggered the event

Guide


Displays the ID of the Guide for which the event was triggered

Step number,

Total step numbers

Shown only when a Guide was exited. Displays the steps at which the Guide was exited and the total number of steps in the Guide.


The results are exported to a JSON format which you can process for your needs with the help of a developer. 

Here is a sample result in JSON format:


How to export the data?

Prerequisites

  • This feature needs to be activated individually. Please request it with your Customer Success Manager. 
  • This type of data export is protected and requires authentication by an Authorization Token. After this feature is enabled on your account, you can generate your Authorization Token on the Userlane Portal under Account > Personal profile > Api Token. 

💡  The token is generated for each Userlane Manager individually. You can generate a new token at any time using the same button in your Portal.


Preparing a request

For the request to be successful, you will need to fill out the tool with the required data in the required format. 

This is the general view of the export page. We will go through all the required fields below:
